What Is Carbon Fiber Basement Wall Reinforcement?

The SettleStop™ Carbon Fiber System is an innovative solution for stabilizing foundation walls that show signs of lateral movement.

Harnessing the incredible strength of carbon fiber, which is ten times stronger than steel when set, this system securely adheres to basement walls, stopping movement and preventing further damage.

They are ideal for walls with minimal issues that have moved inward less than two inches. Unlike bulky beams or anchors, carbon fiber blends in discreetly and can be covered with basement finishing.
